Hi, I'm on my second week on insanity and I feel like I have to eat way more to keep my energy up then what I should! I've noticed my biceps are looking stronger, but I don't see any fat coming off yet! Besides doing insanity I also take my dog for a 30 min. walk everyday unless it's nasty out side, the walk has alot of hills and I end up walking about 2-3 miles! I don't know if that would make any differense! Plus I have a pear shaped body I would really like to get rid of! I'm doing searching on what vegan foods I should stay away from that can increase more fat in the lower body! I do have alot of muscle it's just I got some fat on top of it covering it up, whitch I HATE! It's like the last bit of fat that's hard to get off! I weigh around 140 lbs if that helps! Would anyone know what I might be doing wrong! By the way coconut oil in my diet keeps my energy up and helps me with my blood sugar and helps my digestion- so that's why I have it in some of my meals! :|

For breakfast I have a protein smoothie a hour or so before I exercise! About 7:30 a.m
2-3 bananas
1 serv. soy protein isolate
1cup spinach
1cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp coconut oil

For recovery about 30 min. after my workout I have another protein smoothie.
2-3 bananas
1 serv. soy protein isolate
1/2 cup berries
1cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp coconut oil

For lunch around 1:00 p.m
1cup brown rice
1/2 cup split peas or other peas
1-2 cups of steamed veg.
1 tbsp coconut oil mixed in the rice

For a snack around 3:30
about 5-6 dates or 1cup of juicy fruit
1/4 cup of natural nuts

For supper around 5:30 a medium salad
2cups romain
1/2 med. tomato
few slices of onion
some split peas or 1 vegan pattie cut up in the salad
carrots
celery
cauliflower
broccoli
2 tbsp veagan mayo
1/2 avocado

For a snack around 8:00
medium banana
1 serv. nat. p-nut butter

Judging from your sample day, it looks like you're pushing a nutritious meal plan for the day. I know personally after my workouts I only mix my protein with water, that way I can get my nutrition from a meal rather than what I put into my shake.

Use this formula to calculate your caloric input for a day and shoot for around that.

Your body-weight in pounds x 18kcal = Calories per day.

I'm no expert on this stuff, but that helped me out.

Thanks for your help! I'll try what you said! I'm starting to go back to my raw food vegan diet again! For some reason I can get plenty of food in the raw vegan diet without having too many calories! Plus my digestion does 100 times better which makes a differense in having less body fat! I have hypoglycemia and I do better on the raw vegan diet keeping my fruits high by having a high carb low fat vegan diet! I'll eat a little cooked veggies or whole grains, but 75% or more will be raw because my digestion and energy levels just does so much better! Thanks again!
